I have one of these spin-clean record cleaner and it seems to work pretty good. I use distilled water and use micro fiber clothes to dry the records. :thumbsup:

Hi I also have one of them and they do tend to work rather well.

Good listening

There are many ways and homemade formulas to clean them up.

Have a search on youtube to get some help.

I don´t have a record cleaning machine, I cannot afford one.

There are some good DIY projects to clean records. To me, the most effective is to scrub with a suitable nylon brush, an adequate solution and then vaccum clean.

Again, check on youtube! :)


Cheers!

How did you clean the disc ? As you see with a machine they rotate if you cleaned it as you would a CD -edge to center then that would be wrong. You have got to run round the grooves.While medical alcohol is good for removing germs from the skin before an injection or operation plastic and alcohol dont go together. HT Performances post above is the way I would go.

hii all
i don't know if this thread is still alive. for those who are interested here are my receipts for record cleaning solutions:

2 thirds of destilled water
1 third of Isopropanol alcohol
wetting agent according its instructions (as used for analogue film processing)

or when the record has sticky dirt:
washing solution for car windscreen plus wetting agent. i found best is the cw 1:100 we have here in germany
cheers
Stefan

Hi, That is similar to many diy cleaning solutions. Many use wetting agents for dishwashers.

Good listening
Bruce
